  1. I just found in several threads that " You do need the hotfix". Necessary to prevent Blue Screen Of Death or BSOD and other trouble. See the example below from a 'Emsisoft Employee'. So the 'hotfix' is necessary but now the hotfix does not install anymore.That makes the problem all the more urgent but nowhere a solution can be found. That would mean Emsisoft is no longer usable on Windows 7 installs. Therefore I am very curious to anyone his opinion / advice / help.
  2. I tried to install 'Emsisoft Internet Security' (fresh download from Emsisoft website) and it does not work. From Emsisoft I get the installation message: It is strongly recommended that you install the following hotfix prior to continuing the installation: KB2958399. For more information please visit our KnowledgeBase: http://redir.emsisoft.com/?p=EIS&v=2017.1.1.7166&l=en-us&t=setupkb2958399 Following the link strangely Microsoft only sends this hotfix per email I select from the 3 available options the correct one Product Windows 7/Windows Server2008 R2 SP1 Language All (Global) Platform x64 Fix name Fix499765 I offer my privacy to Microsoft because they only send the hotfix per email and get the download link: hotfixv4.microsoft.com/Windows%207/Windows%20Server2008%20R2%20SP1/sp2/Fix499765/7600/free/474557_intl_x64_zip.exe It is a self-extracting zip file with the installation file caled "474557_intl_x64_zip.exe" When run the file extracted is called "Windows6.1-KB2958399-x64.msu" I find it strange that the fix number is not the KB number and the file to run is called Windows6.1, but I checked it several times and it should be right. When installing 'KB2958399' I get the Windows hotfix message: the "Windows Update Standalone Installer" window says: Windows update is not applicable to your computer. So you end up with 'Emsisoft wanting to first install a KB2958399 hotfix' and this KB2958399 hotfix returns me it is 'not applicable'. Meaning you cannot safely install Emsisoft Internet Security in windows 7 anymore? What is this? Any help or advice will be appreciated. OS: fresh install of Windows 7 Professional SP1 with all necessary AND all suggested updates installed (which as you know takes many rounds). No other antivirus or firewall present yet. 16GB Ram new SSD Intel i5-2520M
